    A holy man was having a conversation

    with the Lord one day and said.

    "Lord, I would like to know what

    Heaven and Hell are like.

    The Lord led the holy man to two

    doors.

    He opened one of the doors and the

    holy man looked in. In the middle of

    the room was a large round table. In

    the middle of the table was a large pot

    of stew, which smelled delicious and

    made the holy man's mouth water.

    The people sitting around the table

    were thin and sickly. They appeared to

    be famished. They were holding

    spoons with very long handles that

    were strapped to their arms and each

    found it possible to reach into the pot

    of stew and take a spoonful.

    But because the handle was longer

    than their arms, they could not get the

    spoons back into their mouths.

    The holy man shuddered at the sight

    of their misery and suffering.

    The Lord said, "You have seen Hell.

    They went to the next room and

    opened the door. It was exactly the

    same as the first one. There was the

    large round table with the large pot of

    stew which made the holy man's mouth

    water. The people were equipped with

    the same long-handled spoons, but here

    the people were well nourished and

    plump, laughing and talking. The holy

    man said, "I don't understand.

    It is simple," said the Lord.

    "It requires but one skill. You see

    they have learned to feed each

    other, while the greedy think only

    of themselves."
